    I saw LED X-mas lights on the rack at Walmart 2 or 3 days ago !!!



    Yikes!

    I am just a little puzzled here. I thought that when Annie, in her universe, disappeared she was a teenager.



    She did look a little older in the years before she disappeared, but we are supposed to just ignore that because Mike and Joe prefer the look she had in earlier years. As far as I’m aware (and I didn’t really read Annie ever), it wasn’t explicitly stated that she had become older — it was just an artistic look that suggested she was older. If you think she just became younger, consider it artistic license.

    Does anybody know if Professor Kenyon smokes?



    It probably wouldn’t be very compatible with his experiments. As I recall, he’s already had an explosion in his house. I don’t think it would be wise to smoke anywhere near there.

    (Possibly a way to bring Flattop Jones back into the picture?)



    Sorry, but I do not want Flattop Jones back. He’s dead and he should remain dead. There’s no reason they can’t think up new and interesting characters who are not already dead.

    I have no objections to characters from the past if they aren’t already dead — in fact, they can be a lot of fun — but I think that constantly recycling characters from the past is a crutch and most new stories should have new and imaginative characters.

    I know that Mike and Joe have all kinds of story ideas in the works built up from the time when they were ordered to limit stories to six weeks, and I look forward to seeing those.

    I’m noticing houses already decorated for Halloween, and I seem to recall a promise that Li’l Abner will be back soon for his swan song…



    I noticed Halloween candy already for sale near the checkout of the supermarket two days ago. Seems a bit early, but yes, we expect to see one last adventure of Abner this fall.

    Cause then he’d be Steve Kenyon. Nah.



    Haha. Canyon, Kenyon, close enough.

    Tracy’s plan is underway! I think Annie is clever enough to not get caught slipping that letter in. I’m not really thinking she’ll get caught at that. I’m expecting Sparkle to get the letter (or at least B.O.).

    Cute picture. Did you do that?

    Seeing it makes me appreciate Joe’s art more than before; on the cover, Charlie looks a lot like Mortimer Snerd.



    I’m not that familiar with Terry and the Pirates, but I do think that Joe may have drawn him the best of anyone.
